My Thoughts: As it says on the book, this is based on the life and works of G.K. Chesterton.   G.K. Chesterton inspired many of today’s loved authors. His view on life made people wonder if they were truly living life to the fullest, and this book is written as a loosely truthful story about his nephew learning from uncle Chestnut how to think for himself.

I wasn’t sure about this book when I got it, but in all honesty, I really enjoyed it and learned some interesting lessons. I was surprised that the author was not the actual nephew; I was so involved with the stories that I truly believed the tales. I actually wanted more wisdom from Uncle Chestnut. Luckily, there is more to find on the actual G.K. Chesterton, and I will be checking him out.

About the Author: Paul Nowak is the author of two books, this one and a book called The Way of The Christian Samurai.

This sounds like a great book! Will have to check the book store and get it for my nephew. It's always good to learn how to think for yourself and not just "go with the flow".
